Mrs. Samantha Yurkewicz

Hello! Welcome to Mrs. Yurkewicz's website! I am super excited to be starting out my third year as a teacher in 3rd grade teacher at Cooper! I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania called Johnsonburg. I attended Clarion University of Pennsylvania for my bachelors degree in both Early Childhood and Special Education. A few things about me are that I love animals, I love to read books, and I love art. This is my third year at Cooper and I am so excited! One thing I love about teaching is that I continually learn along with the students.  I look forward to working with you and your child during one of the most exciting and challenging elementary grade levels!

  • Updated Social Distancing Procedures

    Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
